Poland

Locations: Krakow
Highlights: Student Spring Festival, Holocaust History

Description of Highlights:
Student Spring Festival – Thousands of uniquely dressed students celebrating the end of the semester with a parade and concert ending in the largest old town square in Europe, also home to the oldest shopping mall in the world! We enjoyed the many festival vendors including authentic Polish Sausage and Handmade Artisan grilled cheese. We also found a local jewelry designer and bought our Eastern European wedding rings. Made by hammer and anvil on the spot!

Holocaust History – Stayed in what was once the old Jewish district before the Holocaust, including being in close proximity to Schindler’s Factory, therefore we decided to stay in and watch the Steven Spielberg movie, Schindler’s List. Then next morning we caught a bus out to visit Auschwitz concentration camp. Very sad part of our trip but an educational part of history for the world and the area in which we are travelling.
